Audit of the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program

The opioid crisis has impacted rural communities where barriers to treatment services limit access to care. The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multiyear initiative that addresses the barriers to treatment for substance use disorder, including opioid use disorder. RCORP works toward HHS's goal of ending the opioid epidemic and is supported through the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA's) Federal Office of Rural Health Policy. In 2019, HRSA awarded $8.3 million to 12 eligible rural hospitals, clinics, and Tribal organizations through its RCORP-Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Expansion grant to support establishing or expanding MAT in rural communities. The Notice of Funding Opportunity outlined core activities and set three proposed benchmarks the grant recipients were required or expected to meet during the 3-year grant period. We will review the 12 recipients of RCORP-MAT Expansion grants to determine whether the recipients met the required core activities and proposed benchmarks within the grant period.
